"I focus on a very specific lane when it comes to developing and pitching projects for TV & Film, but it happens to be the most viable lane for success, and more often than not brings us the most compelling stories for television and film. TRUE LIFE. Be it a docuseries that explores an unusual family business, a series or film based on an event or person with an extraordinary backstory that hasn't been told, or a surprising side to a subject people thought they new...truth is better than fiction in my book.
A few things to please keep in mind before I detail my mandate; My position in the industry is one of a catalyst. I source, I develop, I pitch, I position projects with a studio most ideal for that particular project. I partner only with others who are either the proprietary subject, or who hold rights to a published property, as well as other producers with strategic working relations ideal for a specific project." Here's what I'm looking for at the moment:
ORIGINAL DOCUSERIES: Highly original subjects and characters. Any viable series would focus on compelling characters involved in an interesting process. Ideally there would be some competitive nature to what they do. There would be elements that create pressure and drive the process unfolding to what might be a make or break end. As a backdrop to that, I would hope that the "world" it's set in is something new, or is a side of that world we haven't explored before. Learn more about reality docu-series.
BRAND NAMES & GAMES: Game show formats are in my DNA having written and pitched gameshow formats for Merv Griffin in my early years of development. What I'd love to find is an established brand game (It can be a digital App with a big following) that can be adapted for television and streaming media. You would need to own the rights or currently hold a deal to shop those underlying rights. I don't care to be pointed to something that you don't own or hold subsidiary rights to. If you do have a direct connection or rights to a brand name or game that may translates well for television, then I would be interested to see how it may be developed as a format.

BASED ON A TRUE STORY, NARRATIVES: Published articles and non-fiction books for development and adaptation.
